The supermoon this month is the closest the moon has been to the earth since 1948, which is well before I existed. Tossing the camera and tripod in the car, I traveled out to photograph the rise, but soon noticed that the sky was covered in clouds. At first this was disappointing, but I soon realized – how many perfectly focused exposures of the moon do we really need? This shot felt far superior because it was different than the usual. Sometimes you just have to work with what you got. Sometimes that’s better.
The worst part of election season: Yard Signs… Once again, as it seems to be a tradition of mine, I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon by putting out a sign of my own. I grabbed an old election sign and spray-painted the word “LOVE” onto it. I don’t care what side you are on – we are all human – and love is the key to a peaceful and happy life… I like to think this is the only yard sign everyone needs. I think I’ll keep this out for a few months.
While checking out some new gallery openings tonight, I happened upon this image. Nothing is more surprising than realizing YOU are art on the wall… Photographer Alex Seeley made this dark and strange portrait of me during an artist talk he gave at AFA Gallery many months before. As the sitter, I never got to see what became of the image. I really love how little of the figure you can see. The images in Seeley’s solo show at the ArtWorks Gallery are so dark with just a glimmer of light. Just enough light if you ask me.
